Bhubaneswar: To further the 'Digital India' initiative and usher a larger public base into its usage platform, the government has launched "mAadhaar" or mobile Aadhaar (a mobile-based interface) for android users.

The app which has been indigenously designed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) links one's Aadhar number and allows android users to carry their Aadhaar demographic information i.e. name, date of birth, gender and address along with his/her photograph.

Presently the app is available in Google Play and functions with some limited services as it operates as a beta version and users can explore its full usages only after subsequent updates.

The special feature of the app is that it comes with a TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) process instead of conventional SMS based OTP. It also features a biometric locking/unlocking service through which the registered user can only choose to access it.

Further, Quick Response (QR) code facility which enables direct internet links and information communication along with password protected e-KYC data are some other features of the app.

Having a registered mobile number is a must for using “mAadhar” app and in case one does not have a registration can do so at designated nearest Aadhaar Enrolment Centres or Mobile Update End Points.
